eleventh hour (at the)

 Very last minute.
 ► “In Mexico, the government of President Carlos Salinas de Gortari is spending nearly $1 billion on high-tech gizmos that promise to deliver a clear vote in the August 1994 presidential elections. . . . However, political analysts and opposition party members believe this eleventhhour conversion to fair elections is half-hearted.” (Business Week, June 13, 1995, p. 55)
